Absolute Positioning Within Auto Layout

Relay supports absolute positioned elements within auto layout frames. Absolute positioning allows you to exclude an element from the normal layout flow without removing it from the frame itself. The layer order of the objects in the frame is preserved.

Autolayout with absolutely positioned elements


  • Partially Supported Figma Properties
    • Positioned objects must be either behind or in front of all of the auto-layout elements in the frame. Any absolute positioned objects that are layered between auto-layout elements will be pushed to the front of these objects.
    • Nesting auto-layout frames with absolutely positioned objects inside other auto-layout frames can result in incorrect layout, since the bounding box of the nested frame is affected by the positioned items in that frame.
